Testo 883 Thermal Imaging Camera

Product Details:

The Testo 883 Thermal Imaging Camera can reliably & rapidly detect thermal abnormalities anywhere from large installations to small residential buildings. Developed for facility managers, building energy consultants and service engineers, this flexible camera saves time and ensures flawless results. The 883 features an infrared resolution of 320 x 240 pixels (SuperResolution increases this to 640 x 480), thermal sensitivity (NETD) of < 40mK and measuring range between -30 to +650 °C with ±2 °C accuracy. Building energy consultations can aid with maintaining or even improving property prices, however your customers can often have difficulty understanding a thermal image. Similarly, in maintenance and facility management, which is integral to avoiding unplanned downtime, often many image locations can look incredibly similar. Thanks to the incorporated Testo ScaleAssist and SiteRecognition features, the 883 provides a flexible yet dedicated solution to these problems.

Alongside intuitive operation via touchscreen and joystick, the Testo 883 IR Camera gives you complete control over the manual focus and interchangeable lenses. While the standard lens has field of view (FOV) of 30° x 23°, the optional telephoto lens boasts a FOV of 12° x 9°. The manual focus is exceptional for producing sharp thermal images from a distance of only 10cm, whilst the telephoto lens is ideal for distant objects and outdoor recording. Thermal imagery can be adversely affected by the difference between indoor and outdoor temperature, the 883 utilises Testo ScaleAssist to overcome this issue. Automatically adjusting the scale to the optimum setting, this feature results in several notable advantages:

  • The optimum contrast is achieved
  • Any unimportant items are automatically faded out
  • Misinterpretations are prevented
  • Easier detection of weak spots
  • Infrared images are comparable regardless of altered ambient conditions


In addition to the Testo 883 being a reliable instrument for performing thermal measuring tasks, it can also wirelessly integrate readings from the Testo 770-3 clamp meter & 605i thermohygrometer directly into the image via Bluetooth. Connection to the clamp meter is ideal for the thermographic inspection of live components and for fast detection of the load status of a switching cabinet. With the connected hygrometer however, operators can depict the distribution of moisture and highlight areas prone to mould formations. Ambient temperature and humidity are either entered into the camera directly or transmitted via Bluetooth, then in conjunction with the surface temperature the humidity value of each measuring point is calculated. These results are displayed in a humidity mode through a simple traffic light system; green for no mould, yellow for possible risk and red for acute mould risk.

Use the versatile 883’s included Testo e-Assist for automatic recognition of emissivity and determination of reflected temperature, with 11 colour palettes included as standard. Featuring a built-in digital camera and laser marker, this easy-to-handle device is IP54 rated, has an internal memory of 2.8GB and can operate up to 5 hours on one battery charge.

Testo SiteRecognition

For intelligent image management, the Testo 883 Thermal Imaging Camera includes the advanced feature Testo SiteRecognition. Based on a QR code, Data Matrix code, barcode or Testo 2D code, thermal images are automatically assigned to the correct measurement object. This ensures engineers do not lose track of item locations and eliminates the need for tedious, manual image management on a PC. These measuring locations can then be transferred from existing inventory lists, along with collected results, for further processing in a third-party program. Often operators will have to take a considerable amount of pictures of very similar objects, Testo SiteRecognition saves a lot of time and stress discerning which is which and where it is located.

Testo IRSoft & Thermography App

Compatible with the Testo 883, IRSoft is a professional piece of PC software designed to comprehensively analyse thermal images and swiftly compile impressive customer reports. With a report wizard tool guiding you step-by-step, create reports using stored or customised templates created in the report designer feature. Displaying detailed documentation in an easy-to-read format, these templates contain all the relevant information such as location, measuring task and inspection results. This advanced PC software can:

  • Highlight the exceeding or undershooting of limit values or pixels within a temperature range
  • Correct emissivity’s of different materials for image areas or sole pixels
  • Set an unlimited number of measuring points
  • Determine hot and cold spots
  • Enable comments on thermal imagery

Testo IRSoft is included with the both the standard Testo 883 thermal imager and Testo 883 Kit, free of charge and does not require a licence.

With the Testo Thermography App, your smart device becomes a second display and remote control for the 883 IR camera. Live streaming is available for customers and reports can be generated on-site. Use the app to insert measuring points and establish a temperature curve, add comments, store relevant data or see a preview of the full report. The Testo Thermography App is free and available for both Android & iOS.
